FluoSolv® Liquid Vapor Degreaser

  • FluoSolv® logo Formulated Products Vapor Degreasing & Defluxing | FluoSolv nPB Replacement & TE Replacement Vapor Degreaser

Vapor degreasing is an effective method of removing grease and debris from metal parts without using water or manual scrubbing. The liquid solutions used for degreasing are placed in ultrasonic tanks and spray washers and used for hand spraying applications at the end of an assembly line. Since it is a dry process, vapor degreasing eliminates issues such as spotting or corrosion resulting from aqueous cleaning methods. Vapor degreasing is frequently used in aerospace and medical applications, and others that require critical cleaning.
 
While effective and inexpensive, many of the chemicals used for vapor degreasing are highly toxic to humans and contaminate the environment. Some of these products include trichloroethylene (TCE), AK-225/HCFC-225, and 1-Bromopropane (nPB). These products also have a short shelf life and require special handling for shipping and disposal. There are now safer, more effective alternatives these toxic chemicals that get the job done while significantly minimizing health, safety, and environmental risks.
 

A Safer and More Effective Alternative to Toxic Vapor Degreasing Solvents

NuGenTec’s FluoSolv multipurpose vapor degreaser products are effective in a broad range of industrial degreaser and industrial solvent applications. Our well balanced, eco-friendly formulas provide superior performance, improved user safety, and more desirable environmental properties.
 
The FluoSolv family of products includes safe and powerful alternatives for nPB replacement (1-Bromopropane or n-propyl bromide)TCE replacement (trichloroethylene), and AK-225 replacement (HCFC-225). Our vapor degreaser solvents are reusable, have a long shelf life, and do not need to be hauled away as chemical waste.

FluoSolv industrial degreaser and industrial solvent products help manufacturing engineers lower cleaning costs and increase production yields. In as few as three months, the ROI is equal to that of TCE and other toxic degreasers, making FluSolv an excellent replacement for all your vapor degreasing needs. Many of our vapor degreasing products also work well for defluxing applications. See individual product listings for additional information and specifications.

Features & Benefits of Using FluoSolv® Products for Vapor Degreasing

FluoSolv products are effective, non-toxic, and non-flammable solutions for vapor degreasing, ultrasonic vapor degreasing, and other demanding applications. Features and benefits of these unique products include:
  • Non-flammable
  • Non-toxic
  • Chemically stable; will not acidify
  • High Kb value for excellent solvency in tough-to-clean residues
  • Low GWP (global warming potential)
  • High AEL (allowable exposure limit) thanks to low toxicity
  • No ceiling on instantaneous exposure

Effective nPB Replacement, TCE Replacement & AK-225 Replacement

FluoSolv products are a safe-yet-powerful nPB replacement, TCE replacement, and AK-225 replacement option for your most challenging applications. With both spray-and-wipe and aerosol formulas available, we have solvent cleaner solutions for all needs. FluoSolv vapor degreaser solvents are popular in electronics, aerospace, and other demanding industries.

Reasons to Consider an Alternative to Toxic Vapor Degreaser Solvents

TCE, nPb, and AK-225 (HCFC-225) are or once were widely used in industrial vapor degreasing applications, but their use comes with serious risks. TCE is a dangerous substance that affects the central nervous system after chronic or acute exposure and is a human carcinogen that is known to cause cancer in the kidneys, liver, cervix, and lymphatic system. TCE also has moderate water solubility and can leach into groundwater supplies through contaminates the soil.
 
nPB is also a popular yet highly toxic vapor degreasing solvent. Breathing in nPB vapors irritates the eyes, mucous membranes, respiratory system, and skin, and might damage the nervous system. Exposure may also cause neurological effects such as dizziness, headaches, and loss of consciousness. AK-225 (HCFC-225) was another popular vapor degreasing solvent until it was banned in 2015 due to concerns with its adverse health effects.
 
The extreme health risks associated with these chemicals has led to increased regulations for the use of these products in vapor degreasing and other applications. Now is the time to switch to an alternative vapor degreaser solvent that is not only safer for workers and the environment but more effective at cleaning metal parts.
 

Proprietary Vapor Degreasing Solvent Cleaner Formulas

NuGenTec’s FluoSolv products are blended using technology that leverages the chemical solvency of the fluid along with beneficial physical properties such as high density, low surface tension, and low viscosity. This unique approach ensures optimum parts cleaning performance.
 
FluoSolv vapor degreaser products are formulated from our proprietary blend of HFEs (hydrofluoroethers) and t-DCE (trans-1,2-dichloroethylene). This chemical combination effectively removes a variety of surface contaminants, including grease, oil, and particulate matter.

FluoSolv® Material Compatibility

In general, our FluoSolv vapor degreaser solvents are compatible with all metals, ceramic, and other non-conducting materials, as well as most elastomeric materials. Notable exceptions include fluoroelastomers, such as Viton and Kalrez. It is highly recommended that a spot test be conducted on all materials before use to ensure compatibility.
